Au vu de la température déjà très importante à 7 heures du matin, on part faire le ravitaillement d’eau et de glaçons. On prend ensuite la route. On a vite compris qu’aujourd’hui on allait beaucoup rouler!

A quelques minutes de routes, nous tombons sur les fameuses dunes de la vallée de la mort. Le sol est plus que brûlant, et j’ai fait l’erreur de m’y aventurer en flip-flop (claquette)…

On remet ensuite les voiles, direction Golden Canyon! Je vous laisse admirer les routes quasi-interminables par les quelles nous sommes passés…

Après une bonne demi heure de route, nous nous lançons dans la ballade du Golden Canyon. Cette petite randonnée vous mènera au pied des falaises rouges de Red Cathedral en une demi-heure de marche.

Une fois le tour terminé et un demi litre d’eau de perdu, on se dirige vers Badwater. Entre temps, on s’est lancé tenter par Artist’s Palette, un ensemble de petites montagnes où on peut admirer des roches de couleurs différentes.

Et c’est reparti pour quelques miles de plus au compteur !

On arrive enfin à Badwater, un ancien lac chargé en sel complètement asséché! Il reste une grosse couche de sel jonchant le sol.

A ce moment de la journée il est environ 14h et on a dépassé le 44° C. L’air est quasiment irrespirable et le moindre effort nous fait suer! La vallée porte bien son nom 😉

On entame la dernière partie de notre roadtrip, la fin est proche! On se rapproche tranquillement de notre destination finale, Irvine. Avant ça, on fera escale à Josuah Tree National Park, un parc situé à quasiment 5 heures de routes. C’est près de 263 miles qui vont être ajoutés au compteur!

Death Valley, comme son nom l’indique, il n’y pas grand chose à faire, l’environnement est très aride et il y quasiment peu de végétation. Cependant, cette vallée vaut le coup d’être traversée car il y a tout de même de jolies paysages!
